I don’t know how I managed to miss it, but Monday was “Steve in a Speedo’s” 4 year blog-o-versary!! Back in 2006, I was getting ready to race in my first triathlon: the Lifetime Fitness Olympic Triathlon in Lake Nokomis. My, how time flies!
I never thought blogging would be so much fun. I never thought I’d still be so into blogging after 4 years. (And the best one:) I NEVER thought I’d meet so many great people at different races and events because of my blog! It’s been so great (over these last 2 years especially) to head to a random race and be introduced to random people who “know me” from the internet. There isn’t a race I go to where I don’t run into a handful of people whom I NEVER would have gotten to know if it weren’t for blogging!
So thanks, Blogger! And thanks to you, my readers! Here’s to many more happy blog-o-versaries!!
A few days ago, the Minnesota Distance Running Association’s Magazine “RunMinnesota” came in the mail. The cover featured a photo of the first 2 runners at the 2010 MDRA Mudball:
Liberty Triathlon was on Saturday. On Sunday morning, I woke up with a LOT of soreness on the bottom of my foot, near my heel. It wasn’t a hot-spot or blisters. It was something inside my foot. I looked to see if my foot was bruised from being in racing flats all day (I wore them for the race and then for the next few hours while cheering on Pharmie), but there was no visible bruise. I was hoping taking it easy for a few days would make it better.
I talked with Julia a few days ago, and she said to keep an eye on it. I’ve been taking it easy, icing it a few times a day, and hoping for the best. It’s really not changing yet. I've been able to pinpoint it as being a little more towards the top / outside of my foot, under my ankle (but a bit closer to my toes). I hope it’s nothing serious. I’ll keep you in the loop...
